Delivering value through optimized data center infrastructure solutions

End users are generating and using more data than ever, but they still expect instant access to information and personalized services. According to Cloudflare, a company that tracks internet usage in major cities, there was a 40% surge in New York and a 48% surge in San Francisco and Silicon Valley from January to March 2020. Data centers must evolve if they hope to keep pace and deliver a satisfying experience in near real time.

 

The latest technologies - like 5G, faster WiFi, artificial intelligence and machine learning - have created unprecedented opportunities for innovation. But the right data center infrastructure is a critical component of the overall solution.

 

Changing landscape of data usage

 

With a worldwide shift to working and learning at home, data center capacity is being pushed to its limits. Data centers need to expand capacity as usage shifts away from city centers and into residential areas. With shopping tendencies also evolving, e-commerce usage is experiencing a demand spike and stressing cloud infrastructure. To support infrastructure build-out and changing demands for communications and the cloud, flexible, customized and cost-effective infrastructure is a must.

 

We understand the complexities of the industry and have the know-how to build data center infrastructure solutions. Your business needs, technical objectives and time-to-market requirements are the guiding principles for our tailored solutions. We offer rack-level compute and storage solutions optimized for quality, performance and total cost of ownership.

 

Edge computing delivers locally

 

More than 175 Zettabytes of data will be used in 2025, IDC predicts. And Gartner anticipates that more than 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside traditional data centers by 2025.

 

To keep up, service providers are continually upgrading data centers and racing to deploy innovative edge solutions that deliver data in near real time. Edge computing distributes compute resources from the cloud to be located closer to the source of data. With processing taking place much closer to the devices where data is being generated, delivering near real-time experiences is possible.

 

The design of edge computing reduces latency, as well as the network bandwidth required to transmit data from the edge to the cloud. It also enables applications that require near-instantaneous data processing and feedback – like those found in autonomous vehicles, remote surgery and augmented/virtual reality.

 

Our edge infrastructure solutions are tailored to deliver outstanding flexibility, performance and value across a range of applications and workloads. We recently collaborated with Baidu to develop a ruggedized edge solution for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications. Read the case study.

 

Managing TCO to deliver ROI

 

Our infrastructure solutions are customized to your exact specifications to deliver outstanding flexibility, performance, efficiency and ultimately optimizing total cost of ownership (TCO). Industry standard components from a broad array of trusted and approved suppliers are used to improve cost effectiveness and supply chain resiliency. 

 

Today, service providers are faced with unchartered challenges regarding the changing costs of tax and trade compliance, as a direct result of growing data centers that span the globe. With these challenges comes an increasing need to optimize operations to comply with complex local laws and taxation in global markets. Our regional presence, experience and processes offer our customers the option to tailor their unique tax and trade strategies. We help our customers scale and expand their business while maintaining the lowest possible TCO.
